Jax, thanks for the picture of Ulysses at BWDR. I didn't remember that picture being taken. Seeing her just before her last ride almost brings a tear to the eye.

On a different note, it turns out Ulysses was an organ donor. Her top box is now mounted on Mattie. KTM and Buell both use Hepco Becker luggage. The top rack is the same. Looks a little funky, but I didn't see any reason to spend $500 for a trunk when I had one that works just fine. I am going to write "In Memory Of" around the Buell logo on the case.

Thanks,

That is Watkin's Glen SP in New York. Beautiful place, and not too crowded if you avoid race weekends.

Nice day here in southern PA today, and I really needed a good ride.

First order of business is to get my first picture for the Waffle House Rally.


Stumbled across a covered bridge...bonus


We do have some road hazards here in Pennsylvania that are not found everywhere.










Every so often, you need to stop and smell. No flowers right now, so checking out the lichen will have to do.


For Sale: Open and airy floor plan. Good exterior views from every room. Needs a little TLC.










The Susquehanna River is the biggest natural feature this area.


Just a nice road through the forest


This is probably my best on-the-fly picture yet. Love it!

This is from Watkins Glen?? I live in Rochester, about an hour north of Watkins glen. Would you mind telling me where abouts? Also from your pictures (waffle house) are you around Carlisle? I remember passing a Waffle house on my way to Carlisle. I used to live north of you in Malvern, King of Prussia and then Pottstown.

Yep, that picture was taken on the Gorge Trail.

I live a bit east of York. The WF in the picture is one of two in Lancaster. There is one in Carlisle, so your memory is doing just fine.

From last weekend, I give you a little video.



This is my first attempt at video editing, and I will be the first to admit that it is kind of rough. Still, I like it, so I will share.

It was a nice enough day yesterday, and I had nothing pressing after work, so I took the long way home.

First windmills in the area.


River Road in southwest Lancaster County. Fun!




This was my first try at this style photography. Worked fairly well, I think.


And one last shot on the way home.


I will leave you with another video. Hopefully a bit better than the last one.

Huh...the video looks slow to me when playing from the web. Could just be my old Toughbook though. It is a good rugged laptop, but not all that fast. Kind of like a KLR.

One of my favorite roads in the area is Furnace Road (Rt 425). Nothing too special, but I like the way it flows, and it is a pretty ride.

Cool mural I found while looking for cigars
